It was actually really awkward. My dog is like a cat, and she sits on the back of our couch and watches the neighbors. So naturally, I was watching them with her and I saw the mailman dropping off packages. And in his little satchel was a Barnes & Noble box obviously for me.
So the dog and I sprinted down to the yard, picked up the box, and then looked at each other all weird-like, cause I had no idea what I ordered.
Ah the life of a bookstagrammer with no self control.
This Song Will Save Your Life – Leila Sales
I love music-themed books. This one has really high ratings just so everyone is in the know.
Making friends has never been Elise Dembowski’s strong suit. All throughout her life, she’s been the butt of every joke and the outsider in every conversation. When a final attempt at popularity fails, Elise nearly gives up.
Then she stumbles upon a warehouse party where she meets Vicky, a girl in a band who accepts her; Char, a cute, yet mysterious disc jockey; Pippa, a carefree spirit from England; and most importantly, a love for DJing.
Told in a refreshingly genuine and laugh-out-loud funny voice, Leila Sales’ This Song Will Save Your Life powerful young adult coming of age novel is an exuberant story about identity, friendship, and the power of music to bring people together.
Infinite in Between – Carolyn Mackler
God, it’s getting late, I should really go to bed, but yet here I am, trying in vain to update my blog. Needless to say, I’m excited about this one. Plus the cover is awesome and you know I’ll fall in love with a book based solely off the cover.
Side note: I wanted to catch up on This is Us and Scream Queens tonight, but instead I’m blogging because I love you guys, so you’re welcome.
I also fully intended on finishing Furthermore, but I guess NOTHING ELSE IS FUCKING GETTING DONE.
The Breakfast Club meets Boyhood in this striking young adult novel from Printz Honor author Carolyn Mackler, which chronicles the lives of five teenagers through the thrills, heartbreaks, and joys of their four years in high school.
Zoe, Jake, Mia, Gregor, and Whitney meet at freshman orientation. At the end of that first day, they make a promise to reunite after graduation. But so much can happen in those in-between years. . .
Zoe fears she will always be in her famous mother’s shadow. Jake struggles to find the right connections in friendship and in love. Mia keeps trying on new identities, looking for one that actually fits. Gregor thought he wanted to be more than just a band geek. And Whitney seems to have it all, until it’s all falling apart around her.
Carolyn Mackler skillfully brings the stories of these five disparate teens together to create a distinct and cohesive whole—a novel about how we can all affect one another’s lives in the most unexpected and amazing ways. Infinite in Between received four starred reviews, was listed on several best books of the year lists, and is perfect for fans of books by Jandy Nelson, Sara Zarr, and E. Lockhart.
